I Should Have Never Fell In Love

Wayne Toups sings at Rox a song seldom played on radio, cant understand why, you listen to the words, it is a beautiful song that was writen by (a very young)Travis Thibodeaux. Both are artist’s from South Louisiana. This was filmed by my cell phone but still sounds great. Two good artists one touching love song if ever there was one, this is the ONE!

"Loo zee anna" What do you think of the state of Louisiana?

What are some of your first thoughts when you hear the state mentioned or see something about it? What are some of your first assumptions when you think of Louisiana people. What do you know about Louisiana culture?
For those who don’t know: No, we aren’t popular for country music. There’s actually nothing "country" about us, unless it is some of the people who’ve moved in from the neighboring states. 🙂 Even the movies get our accents wrong. =)

As for Katrina, I know no one "mooching" off of the government from it. Trailers were given to residents after Katrina b/c they had no other place to go. *IF* the government actually gets these back they get destroyed, not even used for scraps. Whether someone lives in a Fema Trailer or not is there own business. And for some people, moving on is easier said than done.

But some people just won’t be able to understand unless they go through something similar – which I hope none of you have to do.

I think of it as a laid back, fun loving State.

***LOUISIANA RESIDENTS*** What is your opinion of the grants for grads program?

I’ve read a lot and did a some research, now I would like to know the opinion of the citizens. The Grants for Grads Program is established in recognition that many Louisiana’s residents relocate from Louisiana upon completion of their college careers due to a perceived lack of economic opportunity. Homeownership reflects a commitment to remain in Louisiana and continue the tradition and culture of the state.

The grants for grads awards any Louisiana resident who has received an associate, baccalaureate, masters/postgraduate degree on or after January 1, 2008 and was:

As a LA resident I have been very aware of the outflow of LA college graduates. I have never heard of this program, but I see the need for it and I will definitely look into it.

Does emeril’s cooking taste that good?

Has anyone tasted his cooking it all the hype for real cause he does things that dont look good & mom has noted many cooking errors from this so called expert. He bothers me thinking that new orleans is the only place for cooking louisiana…shucks that’s the nastiest cookin i’m in louisiana i live there & the good cooking is everywhere else…but he is a yankee…they think hot sauce & garlic are god sents when we cook with more than those and the trinity as he said.

His recipes all seem to have so many ingredients that I start to read them and move on to another. He has never been one of my favorites. As a side note, we ate at his restaurant Delmonicos in Las Vegas and had an expensive, but wonderful steak dinner. We later ate at his restaurant in Orlando – can’t remember the name – and we were not impressed at all. Overpriced and forgettable.
